Bentley's Mulsanne is a luxurious leviathan in three unique variants (pictures)

While its exterior changes are subtle, Bentley's new Mulsanne brings a new variant, updated tech and -- of course -- a whole lot of luxury.

The Mulsanne is Bentley's flagship -- the shining example of what the brand is capable of.

The Mulsanne's been refreshed for 2017 with an entire front-end restyle.

Everything in front of the A-pillars is brand new, from the fascia to the grille.

The rear end has been updated, as well, with new taillights and a new feature line across the bumper.

The outer lights have been raised up on the bumper for a slightly less dreary-looking front end.

The updated rear bumper also packs lower corners, not that it's the first place you'd look.

There's no denying the presence of the Mulsanne.

As always, the interior features a wide variety of available veneers, many of them wood.

There are two new seat styles available for order -- fluted and quilted.

The Mulsanne's new headlights consist entirely of LEDs.

Bentley's stainless-steel grille is 3.15 inches wider than before.

There's also a whole new infotainment system, featuring an 8-inch touchscreen.

Even on the "base" Mulsanne, the rear seats are thrones.

All new for 2017 is the Mulsanne Extended Wheelbase.

The wheelbase has been extended by nearly 10 inches, and every bit of that goes to rear-seat legroom.

The Mulsanne Extended Wheelbase also offers up a variety of two-tone paint jobs.

This model will likely sell the best in China, where long-wheelbase models are highly sought after.

The interior features all the same updates present on the standard Mulsanne.

The rear loses the middle seat in favor of a two-seat setup with a large center console.

Each back seat features its own airplane-style leg rest, which extends from underneath the seat.

The Mulsanne is now available with two 10-inch Android tablets, which buyers can use both inside and outside the vehicle.

If hustle is what you're after, you'll go gaga for the Mulsanne Speed.

Its 6.75-liter V-8 has been upgraded to provide 530 horsepower and 811 pound-feet of torque.

Sending power to the wheels through an eight-speed automatic, the Mulsanne Speed will hustle to 60 mph in 4.8 seconds and will continue to a top speed of 190 mph.

There's also a new Sport setting on the air suspension to give drivers a livelier ride.

Again, the interior remains positively exquisite.

Every Mulsanne Speed comes standard with Bentley's Mulliner Driving Specification.

That grants the vehicle diamond-quilted leather seats, a knurled gear shift, alloy pedals and optional carbon-fiber trim bits.

You can always tweak the colors if black and yellow aren't doing it for you.

Both the headlights and taillights are tinted on the Mulsanne Speed.

The Speed also features unique wheels and a "rifled" sports exhaust.

Naturally, there are plenty of Speed badges to go around, as well.
